Gawd nuggits! I've been fighting with leaks and "leaf saw into leaf" problems because I used the tetrahedron technique too much. I cant really say it is worth the trouble compered to the normal triangle technique. Ended up making it all into func_wall and enclosing it with some other blocks (think sky box) and finally after trillions of recompiles it worked :D. Now I just have to finish the rest. Done with 60% of the map perhaps :S.

Outer solid shell, kinda like a small skybox

Anyways, hope I can finish in due time. Good luck everyone and fighto hardo!

My friend the competition ends in two days, you must hurry up! ...and that cave looks very good, good job! I personally never learned tetrahedron method, only ever made these things with triangles.

Wow, not bad.

that looks sick doggybag.

@skals: afaik, "triangles" and tetrahedron are the same ;P

I'm almost done with mine, but dang; my kingdom for a time extension.... ='( ',',',',',',

Can't wait to see the final turnout though, as it seems like there should be a loot of top-quality entries!

You guys were given two entire fucking months. How could you want a extension.

It's one of those things: i know as soon as the deadline is up i will never, ever go back to this map to update it, and that is sad, because i am having so much fun with it ='(
(look at the tear!!)

i mean i'll finish, but there is so much more i'd like to do if i had the time... naw mean? Are you entering btw?

edit: Congrats to Deathan on being the first uploader to the map vault for compo 31!

@Trollo: You have no maps in your map vault. Just sayin'

@Captain: Deathan didn't think about it properly and uploaded his map for everyone to see and get inspiration from. I personally stole all his ideas! JK, but that could happen if the map had some great ideas in it.

That would imply he has had no great ideas.
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-23 03:20:56 UTC Post #300987
Well, that is the downside with posting screen-shots (or the map) early, other people can get inspired and maybe steal your ideas. Also it's kinda like spoiling the end of a movie.

But of course it's nice to see what others have accomplished too as the competition is ongoing but it's better not knowing IMO.

hiho
can u tell why can i see black brushes throw the sky textures?? is it possible to fix the issue without compoling a map in FULL VIS mode?
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-23 11:47:00 UTC Post #300991
@Ninja deff
You have to do FULL VIS or do VIS-blocking (or both) or change the layout of your map. If the engine draws it then you can see it through sky blocks.

Full vis is always good for final compiles though.

Yeah I've had that problem once ninja. My solution was to expand they skybox so that area wasn't concave

Ouch, I had so much more planned, if only my mod didn't keep stealing my time away. I better start touching up my 3 maps for the compo, they are in serious need of Hammering away at! =]
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-24 08:10:25 UTC Post #301007
I keep getting AllocBlock: full. :( ... and my maps are not too big for goldsource (3072 x 2048 x 172)... so now I've got to go scale down the textures in the wad and then go back into hammer and scale them up so they fit! (and then I have to finish building my maps... :lol: )

Unfortunately, I abandoned the compo. Here's my unfinished compo if you want to see:

Ok, there's still time to start one!
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-24 19:09:42 UTC Post #301019
Yeah, 4 hours and almost exactly 50 minutes from the moment of this post.

Posted 7 years ago2011-11-24 20:00:59 UTC Post #301021
gonna make as many updates to mine as possible before the deadline. 'Tis excruciating tho, waiting an hour to compile, make 30 seconds of changes, and wait another hour, only to find it is still fucked up.

)

Soon as i'm done i plan on running through all the entries in the vault so far.. can't wait! =)

Why abandon competition when you have already done some work? I don't see point in this.

Sames here. I think I'll have 15 minutes of wiggle room to upload, I hope..

Aw balls, managed to finish the final compile in time but it had some annoying clipping errors all of a sudden. It will have to do :S hope it doesn't affect too much of the outcome.
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-25 00:03:55 UTC Post #301028
You know, I think I'm in with a chance of winning the "worst entry ever" award! I had 2 months to do it, I managed to spend 2 days on it, mostly on a small but complex entity thingy. It's really big, open, plain and smells of skybox.
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-25 04:36:56 UTC Post #301035
Haha, I wouldn't worry commie, mine comes off as extremely bland. I seemed to have wasted much of the 2 months regarding this compo. ;]
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-25 13:27:20 UTC Post #301042
yeah.. couldn't enter :(
Good luck to everyone else though!!!

Couldn't finish mine in time due to my CPU running a little too hot during compilation. Hopefully that will be fixed today.

I would love to see what you guys would have done with this compo, you both have some really cool maps in the back pack ^^. Hope you can fix it Atom even if it's too late.

Yeah, that's what I felt I should do. But it seems that some people would do anything to discourage this, because they're so almighty. (interesting fact: my map doesn't even take space on TWHL since it's hosted on gamefront, so I haven't wasted space showing my unfinished work).

Since i didn't knew that i had from 25 oktober - 25 november.. i didn't start mapping because of little amount of time.(saw the competition on 10 november)

Isn't there any notifications for this? ex. e-mail ?
Posted 7 years ago2011-11-27 22:40:24 UTC Post #301130
Just wow. THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my map (my most popular map to date in terms of ratings).

I know I pm'd a few people to check it out, but many more than that gave me some nice comments and ratings, which i FULLY DID NOT expect, due to how unfinished it is!

who else entered who is not in the vault?
***

malle: I agree, optional email notifications would be a nice reminder! =)

Sorry to ask this question but how is it going with the judging and when is it likely to be finished?

This is my first competition so I'm not familiar with how it usually works. I know I will get the results when all is done but I'm just curious when that could be :).

Thanks

Congratulations mah man Captain Terror! Great entry sir! And to skals and ninja defuse and the rest that participated. Also to the twhl crew for making it happen so quick, how nice! I'll be sure to download all the entries and review them. From screens i'm suprised rim didn't place with his awesome map. Hope i'll have time to enter the next one. I also enjoyed your map doggybag.
